About Me


Learn Chinese


Always interested in people, maybe even a bit of a nosey parker. Easily entertained and do my darndest to be entertaining back. Sometimes over anxious and neurotic, which I like to hide behind a calm and laid back veneer. Trying to become more of a hugger but always have a big smile at the ready!


Gahhh, perhaps I should google 'Oscar Wilde quotes' and put something witty but I'm constantly bewildered by life and the overflow of information on offer. It's all a conspiracy anyway.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Not loads as I'm not that organised. I'm very up for spreading the CS love - in a non physical sense of course!


Bits and bobs. Have stayed at a few peoples' places now and met up with people in various places.


I'm mostly interested in other people, some may call it nosey but it's a healthy interest I promise.

Try to be active and do 'outdoorsy' stuff.
Enjoy dancing to live music, laughing at live comedy, following locals on bicycles, drinking tea anywhere.

I'm interested in the idea of learning Chess, then I could play with old men outside parks.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hmmm I think seeing evidence of the capability of the human mind and body leaves me more awestruck than something like witnessing the sunrise.
